as far as national strategy? >> look, i think for those of us in a government job, where you want to be like the classic economic book is you want to look for where we are under- investing as a country or where we have too little capital as a country calling to the private sector enterprises, where because of individual private actors do not feel they get the full benefit from those investments, but we as a country would be richer if there was more investment in those areas. one of the things we are trying to look at is -- the expression is where are the death, where are those places for innovative processes where they are not able to get the capitals to become one of the fast-growing companies? the hard part of the government level is you have to ask, is it a valley of death because it should be a valley of death? because it does not make sense for the private or public sector to be investing in companies like that? or is it a case where there really is a market failure, where it may not make sense for particular venture funds to invest in certain companies, but if we had a broad
. they understand this thing they have a great economy growing rapidly is fragile and requires government to facilitate rather than later uncertainty. that is almost like a test tube of forcing. we had a time in which we had a huge amount of uncertainty. comes from -- some comes from government action. we had an aggressive regulatory agenda. we have not made a certain investments we have made. you add that up and you have a period in which businesses are operating under huge weight. creates the conditions under which businesses can operate in intellectual freedom. among the things government can do is create the conditions under which cost [no audio] to allow businesses to innovate. >> one of the statistics i looked at how to do with reducing regulatory barriers and i thought this was amazing. 20 employees spent 36% more to comply with regulations and that goes to the heart of what we consider to be the innovation story in this country. the small startup and that is what we're looking for as we look for the next big economic success story are the start-ups. the serbs that may have been ar

on some of these issues. how about drugs? would you believe that the federal government has no power to negotiate the price of drugs for seniors? in the medicare program? it's true. it's tru. congress passed a law back in 2003, 2004 program that denied the federal government to negotiate prices. we could save a pile of money right there. there are some other things we could do. we could penalize hospitals who have high infection rates, re-admission to hospitals. well, the affordable health care act is already doing that and having an effect. we could also deal with the issues that occur with unnecessary payments. we can reform the system in the way that payments are made so they are more efficient and more effective, and those have been proposed by the president. in fact, there are many, many things that can be done to significantly reduce the cost of medicare without, without doing the onerous damaging proposals that have been made by many of our colleagues on the republican side, increasing the age to 67 and we'll discuss that in much more detail in a few moments. such as going aft
government? why would he be doing this? >> well, i think the professor reason is probably do it in conjunction with the anniversary or, on the 17th which is, widely reported in the paper, in the newspapers, but, you know, our assessment is that their desire to continue down this road is motivated by their desire to ensure that their capability, they are now a self-proclaimed nuclear state, their ability to be able to demonstrate to the world that they have the capacity to be able to build missile and have in the technology to be able to use it in ways of their choosing down the road. and this as i said earlier would be very destabilizing i think to not only to the region, but to the international security environment. so who's helping them and my assessment of their ability to be able to launch this missile? i think that they have progressively gained better technology over time, and they have progressively gained that through a number of methods over a number of years and decades. to the degree that they will be more successful than they were last time, in such a short perio

, a bloomberg government former members of both parties said negotiators should be able to reach an agreement. in an hour, president obama speaks to ceo's at the business roundtable, followed by news conferences with house speaker john boehner and minority leader nancy pelosi. >> the supreme court will look at what was passed in 2008 by a majority of six-three, i believe, and they will say that is precedent. indiana had a voter i.d. -- >> they decided on the indiana case, it was constitutional for them to establish id they did not say all of that was subsequently -- >> they talked about indiana. you misrepresented what i said. the supreme court is the law of the land. >> when i hear these accusations that black people voter i.d. loss disproportionately affect minorities -- implies to me that somehow we have something missing in our brain. as -- if white americans can get id to vote and go through all the processes to follow the laws, what are you telling black people? that somehow they are not good enough? that is what bothers me about a lot of the rhetoric coming from democrats and the left.
than 50 cents of every dollar they make. they pay the state, the local, the fatigue government in taxes. what america should be addressing is two things. one, we should be addressing generational theft. we now as a country borrow 40 cents of every dollar that the government spends, and we've accumulated 16 trillion dollars in debt. now, in 2008 obama called nine trillion dollars in debt. he said that was irresponsible, unpatriotic. to say this another way, we're literally stealing money from our children and our grandchildren. now, this is the kind of generational theft that has never happened in this country until now, and neerlt part neits addressing this on a regular basis. both parties are arguing over how to tax the rich. now, number two. greed and overspending. for all the talk about greedy rich people in america, how is it possible that politicians' greed is never addressed? after all, they robbed the social security trust fund. they spent it. that's your retirement money that was supposed to be put away in a safe lock box. they spent that money. medicare is also headed for bankr
secretary of the treasury, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual observer is that this plan is not a balanced. the fiscal cliff involves nearly four dollars of anticipated revenue from higher taxes for every dollar
and seeing all these government buildings and thought, what do these people do all day? i felt the more i engaged in government, the more conservative by became. i felt government was not doing a whole lot. i think government should be there for the poor. i think it should be there as a framework for how we conduct business and a structure for society. when you read the constitution, that is what the founding fathers had in mind, i believe. i do not think government is there to prop us all up, because then there would not be a safety net left for the people in life who really need it. the disabled, people who fall on hard times and need a little help along the way, but i feel as though government now has opinion, for how we live our life and conduct business. >> go back to that table you used to sit around at home. where was it? who sat around the table? what did your mom or dad do? >> i grew up in virginia. when we all got home from school, my dad got home from work and mom was always cooking mostly a good meal. it was a time when we all sat down. i remember watching walter cronkite at t
